I go back to 1963 watching the 3 teams and '67 with the Flyers.
Record in the finals since then
7-17 in the finals.
Grateful to have the Titles the teams earned, but frustrated at the opportunities they let slip away.
This Super Bowl Loss has the same feeling as 1964, even though the Phils didn't make the Finals.
They were so far in front for the NL pennant it was a given they would be in the World Series.
On Sunday Sept 20th they beat the Dodgers to go 6.5 games in front with 12 to go.
Phils @ 90 - 60
St. Louis in 2nd @ 83-66
Proceeded to lose 10 straight.
Wednesday Sept 30th they lost the 10th straight to St. Louis to fall to 3rd place, 2.5 games back.
St. Louis @ 92 - 67
Cincy @ 91 - 68
Phils @ 90 - 70
Phils won the last 2.
Finished tied for 2nd place.
St. Louis 93 - 69
Phils 92 - 70
Cincy 92 - 70
